Gibraltar’s subtropical climate is as warm as the welcome of its people. Its rich history and environment ensures a distinguished position as a destination for both tourism and business.
From its vantage point over the Western Mediterranean, Gibraltar is known as the meeting place of continents. This spectacular British Overseas Territory, covering over six square kilometres, is situated at the southern tip of Spain overlooking the strait to Africa. At the foot of the iconic Rock of Gibraltar is the densely populated city area, home to almost 30,000 Gibraltarians and other nationalities, who are drawn together from many cultures.
Gibraltar's close proximity to Spain and mainland Europe offers many social, cultural and sporting opportunities including several world-renowned golf courses. A peninsular at the meeting point of the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean provides the perfect setting for all forms of exciting water sports.
Gibraltar is proud to offer A high standard of primary and secondary education, with ambitious plans to build new schools well underway. Tertiary education is funded by the Government to qualifying individuals, and the recent opening of Gibraltar’s first university adds to the breadth of locally available academic opportunities.
